3 Bedroom Detached Bungalow Sold
Nestled away on an exclusive development sits 4 Earlsmead Gardens which is approached from a sweeping shingled communal driveway.
The property sits within the grounds of the former Mileham Hall where Sir Edward Coke was born in 1552. Sir Edward was elected speaker of The House of Commons in 1592 and later presided, as attorney general, over the prosecutions of Guy Fawkes and the gunpowder plotters.
Constructed in 2013 by respected local developers Orchard Homes, the property is superbly presented using high specification throughout. This includes under floor heating via an air source heat pump, which was replaced in 2018 - providing a seven year warranty.
The accommodation includes an impressive open plan kitchen/living/dining room, fitted with a range of wall and base units, complemented by granite worksurfaces and a Stove Rangemaster oven and American fridge freezer.
Furthermore, there is an integral dishwasher with led kickboard and undercounter lighting. The living area has bi-fold doors allowing the light to flood in which creates an inside/outside space linked to the rear garden. The separate sitting room overlooks the rear garden, fitted with patio doors and a unique corner window which also provides a light space to enjoy.
There is a utility room positioned next to the kitchen which has plumbing for a washing machine and leads out onto the fully paved side courtyard, ideal for clothes drying.
All three bedrooms are accessed from the hallway, the principal suite has an en-suite fitted with built-in wardrobes and the third bedroom is currently used as a study. Furthermore, there is a family bathroom serving bedrooms two and three.
Over the past three-and-a-half years, the owners have landscaped both the front and rear gardens. To the front, there is an array of mature plants and shrubs providing some colour that encourages wildlife. The shingled driveway allows for ample parking and leads to the oak support cart shed and the single garage.
The rear garden is an exceptionally private space. The patio creates a sociable space to sit out and enjoy yourself, amongst various flower beds around the garden and it all provides a tranquil space.
